Cait is going through “a phase” where she prefers to be independent in every imaginable way, including relationships. Some of it, I think, stems from being in a time-sucking pre-med program with a concurrent job in an ER, while looking at looming med school debt. So I wasn’t surprised to get this text. Yet I can’t help myself but want to encourage her to be more open to all of life.

And, just like her, she snapped me back to “just appreciate the meme” —not everything has to be a teachable moment. Copy that.

*If you can’t read the yellow text on the photo, it says “I don’t need a man, I need money sweetie.”
